Celebrate carnival season with a grand showcase of music and dance performances, delicious food, and a street parade that will take over downtown Houston this June. Join hundreds of revelers for this grand celebration of diversity and culture.
Celebrate carnival season in grand style at the Premier Annual Carnival Houston show in downtown Houston this June. Music, traditional cuisine, dance performances, and a showcase of carnival costumes are just a few things to look forward to at this party taking over the streets of downtown Houston on June 11, 2016.
This year's event kicks off on Thursday, June 9 with a Fantasy Costume Ball. Continue the celebration with the Paint Party on Friday and then catch the free street parade that runs from 1 to 3 p.m. near Discovery Green on Saturday. This is your chance to dance along with Salsa, Calypso, Samba, and Soca music and dance performances and watch costume masqueraders capturing the essence of carnival season from the Caribbean, Brazil, and Mardi Gras.
Bring the kids to enjoy some carnival rides and don't miss the chance to participate in the limbo contest. The Carnival Festival runs from noon until 8 p.m. on Saturday, a grand celebration of diversity, talent, and delicious food. If you're planning on exploring downtown Houston after Carnival celebrations, you'll find plenty of great places to eat nearby, including Calabash Eats for Caribbean cuisine or Vic & Anthony's Steakhouse for a hearty meal.
Guests staying at the Best Western Rio Rancho enjoy easy access to Discovery Green and the parade route during Carnival Houston events. Stay with us for affordable accommodations and basic amenities for a long weekend or overnight stay.
